Electric Assist for my Pashley with Hub Brakes
Electric Assist for my Pashley Sovereign
** I posted this in the commuting forum by accident. Im re-posting here...sorry about that **
I have a Pashley Roadster Sovereign and want to look into adding an electric assist to it. The issue is that the Pashley has hub brakes. Is there a way to electrify it through a wheel hub, even though thats where the brakes are located?
The specifics of my bike is here:
The reason why I want to electrify it, is because I want to be able to ride to work without sweating and then completely ride home (without electric assist) to get my work out. Im just tired of going to work, showering, changing..etc. It would be nice to arrive sweat free with my work clothes. So i want to use the electric assist to help me get over the uphill slopes on my way to work. The flat and narrow isn't a problem. That's easily ride-able
